As New Jersey struggles to pick up the pieces in the devastating aftermath of Superstorm Sandy, the Seaside Heights, N.J. pad that Snooki and her Jersey Shore cast mates called home is still standing.

The iconic beachfront town made famous by MTV's reality hit was virtually decimated by Hurricane Sandy and fires continued to burn Oct. 31 as the area remains underwater.

"Sandy destroyed Seaside -- our second home," costar Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi said in a statement to MTV News Oct. 30. "It's devastating to see our boardwalk and favorite spots ruined. My prayers go out to everyone affected by the storm."

Many hangouts seen on the show, including the Star Jet roller coaster and boardwalk, are no more. Touring the wreckage in his home state Tuesday, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie called the damage in Seaside Heights "unfathomable." President Obama has since declared New York and New Jersey disaster areas.

"My thoughts and prayers go out to everyone affected by Hurricane Sandy, especially our friends and family in Seaside Heights, N.J., and a huge thank you to all the men and women who have been working around the clock to protect and help everyone, true heroes," Paul "Pauly D" DelVecchio told MTV News.
